Rodeo Advocacy Day in Los Angeles, California

On August 15th, Western Justice and other Western Sports Industry Coalition members traveled to Los Angeles, California, to advocate for Rodeo, animal exhibitions, and to educate and inform Los Angeles City Council members about animal welfare and the far-reaching impact of the equipment ban ordinance language.

Engaging with Los Angeles City Council

Our day consisted of directly engaging with nine different Los Angeles City Council offices. We also attended the City Council meeting, where each Western Sports Industry Coalition member addressed the council as a group during the public comment period.

Membership Supports Our Work

It was very productive to meet with the City Council offices in person. While our fight is far from over, we left knowing that positive steps were made. Your Western Justice membership will help us to pay to continue advocating for Rodeo and our Western Heritage, for our in-person trips to the Los Angeles City Council offices, and more.



Please help protect rodeo and animal exhibitions.
